Dear Parents/Guardians, and Staff,
This letter is to inform you that St. John Paul II Regional School was recently inspected by an accredited Diocesan asbestos inspector, as required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Act of 1986 (AHERA). AHERA requires Local Education Agencies (LEA) to identify asbestos containing materials (ACM) in their school building and to take appropriate actions to control the release of asbestos fibers. This was a routine inspection required of each Diocesan school every six months. At the time there is no evidence of physical damage, water damage or deterioration.
In addition to the regular routine six month inspection, the school is re-inspected every three years by a licensed asbestos consultant from the State of Connecticut.
St. John Paul II School maintains in its Business Office a complete, updated copy of the Asbestos Management Plan. This planis available during normal business hours, without cost or restriction, for the inspection by representatives of EPA and the State, the public including teachers, other school personnel, and their representatives amd parents. The plan is also available for inspection, without cost or restriction, to workers before work begins in any area of the school building.
